On Practicing Gratitude


wealthymattersFor the last couple of months, I have been practicing gratitude. I believe that doing so forces us to ‘be mindful’ as the Buddhists put it. That way we become more aware of what is happening to us at any given moment and we start living each moment more consciously and so get more out of life. Also if we get into the habit of being grateful for something, we will be conscious of its importance, and so unlikely to do or allow anything to be done to destroy what we regularly give thanks for. So, if we are regularly grateful for the food we eat, which we are aware of comes from our farm, and so and so helped grow it and transport it, we are likely to value the farm and the people who work there and their skills. We are unlikely to let the farm run to ruin or sell it out of hand. We are unlikely to disrespect the people who work there and lose the benefit of their abilities. And ultimately, all these things that we surround ourselves with are symbols of our wealth. If fact our wealth comes from these production systems we control. So, if we’d rather be wealthy and remain wealthy, practising gratefulness is a good exercise. Just, set aside a few seconds a day to mentally count the many good things you have enjoyed in the course of the day, and get started on practicing gratitude. Read more of this post

Thinking Of #GreadDad


I couple of days back, I watched this video and it got me thinking:

The first thing to strike me was that I have never known my dad to vocalize his feelings or his doubts. Then it struck me that I have never seen my grandfather, his father, ever vocalize his feelings for my father……..But my uncles, all consider my dad, their father’s favourite son…….Then it struck me that men really are not like women, and I really need to look at actions not words to understand what they feel.

Fishing In Troubled Waters


There is a time for war and a time for peace. And professional war-makers and peace-makers can both make money.

Here is a little story. Once two crows were fighting over a chappati. Since neither crow was able to prevail over the other, they invited a stray dog nearby to help them split the chappati into two exact halves.The dog tore the chappati into two and then each time one or other of the crows alleged that the other crow’s portion was bigger,the dog ate a small bit from one or the other crow’s portion till the whole chappati was gone.

Now,if you find making money from other people’s conflicts interesting,you could consider entering the field of conflict resolution.There are courses to help you prepare to do so.
